  • Roundtable: ASEAN at Fifty and Beyond
    • Abstract: One of the most recognizable and durable regional intergovernmental organizations in the world, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) will commemorate its golden jubilee on 8 August 2017, fifty years after the signing of the ASEAN Declaration in Bangkok by Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore and the Philippines. The "ASEAN-5" were later joined by Brunei on 7 January 1984, Vietnam on 28 July 1995, Laos and Myanmar on 23 July 1997 and Cambodia on 30 April 1999, comprising what is today the ten member states of ASEAN.To mark the 50th anniversary of ASEAN's establishment, the editors of Contemporary Southeast Asia invited eight senior policy practitioners and academics to chart the organization's ...

  • The Expansion of ASEAN and the Changing Dynamics of southeast Asia
    • Abstract: The contributions ASEAN has made to Southeast Asia over the past five decades have been nothing short of transformative.First, ASEAN has been critical in transforming the nature and dynamics of relations among the countries of Southeast Asia, helping to build "strategic trust" where once "trust deficits" and even open conflict abounded. Second, ASEAN has been invaluable in transforming the countries of Southeast Asia from being "pawns" and the objects of the Great Powers' direct and indirect "proxy" rivalries, to being in the "driving seat" in shaping and moulding the region's political-security and economic architecture. Third, and often least recognized, ASEAN has promoted a more people-centred and ... Read More

  • Is ASEAN Due for a Makeover'
    • Abstract: By any measure, the Association of Southeast Asian Nation's (ASEAN) commemoration of its golden jubilee this year is missing its usual pomp and fanfare. The excitement and interest in celebrating this milestone is noticeably absent, and this is certainly a cause for concern. If ASEAN does not take itself seriously, why should the rest of the world' By the same token, if ASEAN does not see fit to make a "big deal" out of the 50th anniversary of its founding, why should those outside the region pay any attention to ASEAN'That the ASEAN leaders did not affirm the importance of the golden jubilee at the 30th ASEAN Summit held in April 2017 was certainly a missed opportunity. Specific mention of this important milestone ... Read More

  • The ASEAN Charter Ten Years On
    • Abstract: On 13 January 2007 the High Level Task Force (HLTF) on the Drafting of the ASEAN Charter held its first meeting on the sidelines of the Twelfth ASEAN Summit in Cebu, the Philippines. On 20 November 2007 this author had the honour to present the completed ASEAN Charter for signature by the ASEAN leaders at the Thirteenth ASEAN Summit in Singapore. The Charter was drafted in an inordinately short time—barely ten months elapsed between the first meeting in Cebu and the last meeting in Vientiane in October 2007.The tight time frame for the drafting of the Charter meant that many things were fudged and left to be elaborated later. The aim was to get the building up and the façade nicely painted in time for the Summit ... Read More

  • ASEAN and the Great Powers
    • Abstract: For half a century the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) has helped shape regional interactions with the Great Powers including the United States, the Soviet Union and a rising China. ASEAN has furnished spaces for diplomacy, spoken with a collective voice for its constituent members and generated regional norms and practices that incentivize and constrain Great Power behaviour. ASEAN's role in mediating Great Power relations has evolved considerably from its birth to middle age, as the dynamics among major external actors have changed and the degree of unity among its members has waxed and waned. In the Association's early years, Great Power politics spurred ASEAN towards stronger cohesion and ... Read More

  • A Tale of Two Institutions: The ARF, ADMM-Plus and security Regionalism in
           the Asia Pacific
    • Abstract: The Asia-Pacific region is served by not one but two region-wide security arrangements, namely, the ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF) and its newer counterpart, the ASEAN Defence Ministers' Meeting-Plus (ADMM-Plus). Like their namesake and appointed custodian, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), both the ARF and ADMM-Plus lack the deeply institutionalized character of their Western counterparts and are not deemed as particularly effective mechanisms for conflict management and resolution. On the other hand, (and, importantly, regional aspirations aside), the institutional designs of the ARF and ADMM-Plus as principally mechanisms for dialogue and consultation essentially mean they are not created to ...

  • The East Asia summit and ASEAN: Potential and Problems
    • Abstract: For the past five decades, ASEAN has been the sole regional institution of substance in East Asia. During most of its existence, it was largely focused inward and on Southeast Asia. However, in the late 1990s that situation began to change. Asian states began to experiment with new regional mechanisms and processes, and ASEAN began to take a more expansive vision of its regional role.1 These were at times complementary processes. The creation of ASEAN Plus Three (APT) and the ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF) in the 1990s were the first elements of external engagement. The organization realized that in an increasingly interconnected East Asian region, the interests of its Southeast Asian members were going to be shaped ... Read More

  • The Myth of ASEAN Centrality'
    • Abstract: "ASEAN centrality" has become a prominent and perhaps fixed notion in the vocabulary of Southeast Asia's and Asia's international relations. But its origin is obscure and meaning unclear.1 And there are misconceptions or myths about ASEAN centrality that need to be understood and clarified.First, contrary to what many observers may think, ASEAN centrality is not an entirely novel or distinctive term. Rather it is related to a number of similar concepts: ASEAN as the "leader", the "driver", the "architect", the "institutional hub", the "vanguard", the "nucleus", and the "fulcrum" of regional processes and institutional designs in the Asia-Pacific region. A second popular misconception about ASEAN centrality is that ... Read More

  • Mapping ASEAN's Futures
    • Abstract: The future of ASEAN is necessarily unknown. Its futures, however, can be guessed with less risk of being wrong. The purpose of this article is not to predict with confidence but to "pandict" with reticence—not to choose one assured future but to scan several that could conceivably occur. Also, what follows is merely a range of possible futures, not the range. The five different ASEANs of the future all too briefly sketched below are meant to be suggestive, but they are neither fully exclusive nor jointly exhaustive. Potentiality outruns imagination. The author's hope is that by doing the easy thing—opening a few doors on paper—he may tempt analysts more knowledgeable than himself to do the hard thing. That truly ... Read More

  • Fishing Militia, the Securitization of Fishery and the South China Sea
           Dispute
    • Abstract: In April 2016, Foreign Policy published a report entitled "Fishing disputes could spark a South China Sea crisis". This report pointed out that "large and growing fishing fleets in almost all the countries ringing the South China Sea are at the front lines over the fight to control tiny rocks with names like Mischief Reef, Fiery Cross, and Scarborough Shoal".1 Indeed, amid rising tensions in the South China Sea, there has been a growing number of maritime incidents involving regional fishermen,2 and with Chinese fishermen in particular. Some of the maritime incidents have even triggered diplomatic and security tensions between China and its neighbours in the South China Sea. For instance, the Philippine Navy's ... Read More

  • The Thai–Cambodian Border Dispute: An Agency-centred Perspective on the
           Management of Interstate Conflict
    • Abstract: The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) is commonly recognized as a successful model of institutionalized interstate cooperation midway towards forming a security community of states that do not fight each other.1 Yet, in early 2011 Southeast Asia witnessed what a senior Thai diplomat called "the first war between two members of ASEAN".2 Following months of diplomatic strain and sabre-rattling over unresolved border issues, Thai and Cambodian security forces clashed in early February 2011, leaving at least eight persons dead and close to a hundred military, police and civilians injured.3 The ensuing stand-off led to renewed fighting in mid-April. Over the course of one week, both sides exchanged mortar ... Read More

  • Dephasing India's Look East/Act East Policy
    • Abstract: The year 2017 marks twenty-five years of dialogue partnership, fifteen years of summit-level relations and five years of strategic partnership between India and ASEAN. The relationship between India and Southeast Asia has come a long way from the days of mutual mistrust rooted in concerns over India's naval ambitions in the 1980s;1 New Delhi's support for Vietnam following its invasion of Kampuchea (Cambodia) in 1978 and recognition of the Heng Samrin regime in 1980;2 and Indian perceptions of ASEAN as "an instrument of neo-colonialism and a reincarnation of SEATO [South-East Asia Treaty Organization]" following its creation in 1967.3 Undoubtedly, India's economic interactions, institutional linkages and security ...

  • Blogging Three Ways in Vietnam's Political Blogosphere
    • Abstract: In global rankings on Internet freedom, international watchdogs consistently rate Vietnam very low1 due to the fact that the government has increased its control of the Internet using various monitoring methods and because it detains journalists, bloggers and netizens for espousing their political views.2 However, these surveys do not capture the complexity of the ongoing changes in Vietnam brought about by the Internet. Vietnam's cyber environment has experienced remarkable changes since the late 2000s when the effects of the Internet started to reach beyond the economic sector and began to influence public discourse and civil society as a whole. After a decade—from 1997 to 2007—of being delayed due to the ... Read More

  • Caretaking Democratization: The Military and Political Change in Myanmar
           by Renaud Egreteau (review)
    • Abstract: In Caretaking Democratization the French scholar Renaud Egreteau adds his voice to the growing body of literature on Myanmar's recent political transition. Egreteau already has a considerable number of publications on Myanmar under his belt, not least on the role of the military in the country's politics and the role of the national-level parliament since reforms were introduced in 2011. As such, it is not surprising that, like other academics, Egreteau sees endogenous rather than external factors as key to the "pacted" transition he says we have witnessed in Myanmar (p. 15). The title of the book clearly conveys the thrust of Egreteau's argument: namely, that when compared to the period of direct military rule ... Read More

  • Man or Monster' The Trial of a Khmer Rouge Torturer by Alexander Laban
           Hinton (review)
    • Abstract: Alexander Laban Hinton's Man or Monster: The Trials of a Khmer Rouge Torturer revolves around Kaing Guek Eav (aka Duch), the commandant of Democratic Kampuchea's S-21 torture and confession-generating centre, and perhaps the most written about figure of the Pol Pot regime, apart from Pol Pot himself. This is well-trod territory, and, apart from mostly informal interviews Hinton recorded with witnesses and participants in Duch's trial, much of the source material is in the public domain (Hinton's long relationship with the Documentation Center of Cambodia provides him with access to the Center's materials and photographs, which adds substantially to the book's overall impact).So what is new here' The answer is the ...

  • Witch-Hunt and Conspiracy: The "Ninja Case" in East Java by Nicholas
           Herriman (review)
    • Abstract: Extraordinary violence has often accompanied momentous political change in Indonesia. The democratic transition in 1998 was no exception. Following President Soeharto's resignation in May 1998, racial riots broke out in major urban centres and communal violence paralysed daily life in parts of the country. Within the context of this widespread insecurity, observers also noted an alarming rise in mob attacks across Indonesia. Perhaps due to the salience of political contention at the time, early accounts describe these attacks as the consequence of inter-elite competition produced by rapid institutional reform. In Witch-Hunt and Conspiracy, Nicholas Herriman challenges the primacy of these national-level factors. ... Read More

           Hirsch (review)
    • Abstract: Philip Hirsch's edited volume provides an incisive and comprehensive examination of the complex environmental challenges facing Southeast Asia, one of the world's most economically, demographically and ecologically diverse and dynamic regions in the world.The book comprises thirty chapters in total, each interesting in its own right and each showing how thinking and writing about the environment vary depending on the author's disciplinary background, and ideological and political stance. In Part 1, the introductory chapter by Hirsch sets out the premise of the book and what readers can expect from each chapter. The next ten chapters have thematic slants (Part 2), eight focus on sectoral issues (Part 3) and twelve ... Read More

  • A Great Place to Have a War: America in Laos and the Birth of the Military
           CIA by Joshua Kurlantzick (review)
    • Abstract: This aptly, but ironically, titled book tells the story of US involvement in Laos from the early 1950s through the secret war of the 1960s and beyond. Like many journalistic accounts, the book relies substantially on interviews with the American participants and the Hmong military leader Vang Pao, but it is also informed by recent scholarship and some documentary sources. Its focus is on events and actions in Laos, though it does not ignore policy in Washington. Joshua Kurlantzick argues that, despite the enormous damage and huge casualties inflicted in Laos and the ultimate triumph of communist forces, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) counted Laos, the first war that the agency directed, among its great ...

  • Foreign Policy and the Media: The US in the Eyes of the Indonesian Press
           by Jarno S. Lang (review)
    • Abstract: How does the Indonesian public perceive America and its foreign policy' Why were public perceptions of the United States more negative under President George W. Bush than during the administration of President Barack Obama' This book tries to answer these questions by using the lens of the media. Using constructivism, Jarno S. Lang defines power as not merely material factors such as the economy or the military, but also non-material factors, such as the ability to intervene and hinder the reproduction of identities of another actor. It is in this context that, he argues, the media can play a role in "influencing the political decision-making process by affecting public opinion and decision maker's choices" (p. ... Read More

  • The South China Sea Disputes: Past, Present, and Future by Nalanda Roy
           (review)
    • Abstract: Nalanda Roy, a political science professor at Armstrong State University in Savannah, Georgia, has compiled a compact volume chronicling the maritime quarrels convulsing the South China Sea. Indeed, Roy packs so much information into so few pages that her account has an almost jittery feel to it. Her method of presenting the material makes an impression on readers, or on this one at any rate. It is unsettling. She touches on some episodes such as China's occupation and fortification of Mischief Reef, furnishing only the barest of details. She then moves on to the next episode, then the next and the next. Veering back and forth in this manner reveals much about the political and strategic setting in Southeast ... Read More

  • Piracy in Southeast Asia: Trends, Hot Spots and Responses ed. by Carolin
           Liss and Ted Biggs (review)
    • Abstract: The issue of piracy in Southeast Asia has been a vexed one since the problem rose to prominence in the 1990s. Much ink has been spilt, forests pulped and conferences endured to produce copious volumes on the issue. Unfortunately, much of the published output has been far from enlightening; often uninformed, uncritical or repetitive and derivative. It is too complicated a topic to be treated well superficially. Compared to the widely reported piracy problem off the coast of Somalia, the Southeast Asian variety is mired in much deeper levels of complexity and murkiness befitting the region's vulnerable maritime underbelly; seemingly unavoidably beset by criminality and corruption. My first thoughts on receiving this ... Read More
